Restaurant Entertainment

Giving parents a reason to talk about your restaurant.

Restaurant owners are you looking for a solution to:

  • Frustrated by negative Yelp reviews, then let’s give customers a positive experience to write about.
  • The lobby of waiting customers is a good thing.  Except when they get bored and take to their phones to complain, here’s how we can put fun into their day. Let’s talk about your restaurant promotion.

Eating at my local pizza parlor, I noticed they give out a coloring page to the kids.  The waitress said it was something new as the owner wanted to bring families back to the restaurant.

Being an entertainer, I thought I could help this restaurant.  Kids love balloon animals, and I know from my 30+ years of experience it works.

To be honest, it took a couple of months for our plan to take hold fully, but now parents call ahead to make sure I’m there.

Would you believe implementing a simple customer retention plan to provide the kid’s balloon entertainment was an easy solution?

 No discounted food. No crazy giveaways. 

A special no-risk,
no-obligation offer.

 People eat at restaurants that are within their budget, have good food, are clean, and have a family-friendly atmosphere or theme restaurant to occupy the children. Sadly, many theme restaurants are expensive, while the quality of food and service is nothing to brag about to neighbors.  We visit these restaurants yearly, and recommendations are not glorifying. Kids Typically Dictate Where Parents EatWhen the kids are happy along with good food and service, the parent’s dining experience is heightened – giving them a reason to return and recommend your restaurant. Magical Balloon-dude Dale specializes in helping restaurants retain customers and provides customers with a reason to boast about your restaurant by providing promotional balloon entertainment.

The entertainment journey…

I created DEO Consulting originally as a computer consulting company when I graduated from college.  

My first employee was a 53, an out-of-work national sales manager who understood sales, distribution, and networking. He became my Vice President.

My second hire was a seasoned organizer who had years of managing skills.   These two people shaped my business, honed my skills, and my two best employees…they were my parents.

Before I started DEO Consulting, I loved to entertain, and it was that passion made me incorporate entertainment into my DEO Consulting business model.

A college degree, years of business experience, and a strong supportive foundation made it easy to segment out of the computer industry and into my absolute passion for entertaining people.

Starting in 1988, DEO Consulting, Inc is a family-owned business run by Dale and Michelle Obrochta.

Its goal, to provide the highest quality of restaurant entertainment to businesses resulting in a great audience experience.

Hindsight is 20/20

Looking back, I see a naive child who thought restaurant entertainment was just about making kids happy. It took working with wise restaurant owners to show me the ropes…

Frank took over his family restaurant and was in crisis mode as he realized the restaurant’s birthday promotion, age = discount, was quickly approaching 80%.

Frank decided to invest in promoting kids’ entertainment three nights a week.  He had moderate success but had difficulties working with the young entertainer who lacked the work ethic and didn’t understand an in-store promotion.

When I met with Frank, he outlined his concern, and from past experiences, I designed a program that would help him establish a loyal following of younger families.

Unlike the previous vendors, Frank placed signs announcing the family entertainment posted by the exits and restrooms along with table toppers.  A marketing tactic that I acquired from my days entertaining at nightclubs.

We changed the generic coloring pages to a customized promotional coloring page with a cartoon picture of me making balloon animals.  Kids were encouraged to color the page and hang them on the wall. I’ve sat in many restaurants looking at generic drawings and thought…what a waste of valuable marketing real estate.

The front marquee, website, and waitress advertised the kid’s nights.

We even implemented a promotional program that I did for a restaurant serval years earlier, where each to-go order has a small 4x4 customized flier attached advertising kids’ night.

When I look back at what little I provided a restaurant owner, I’m amazed they even hired me. Your next promotion is only a phone call away…

A partner that will work with you…

My dad wore a suit, tie, and hat to work until he started working from home in the early 1980s.

Mom stayed home to ensure a well-balanced meal was on the table, clean house, and helped me with any trouble I go into; she was there by my side defending me.

It was that foundation of strong personal values of work, etiquette, and loyalty are reflected in my entertainment as I recall once sending a text to a store manager who hired me saying…

“I know you’re temporarily managing another Portillo’s this week, but I want to give you a heads up if somebody complains.  It has been close to a ½ hour, and now the table has not been cleaned.  Want me to tell somebody?”

Portillo’s has over 90 employees, and during every shift, there are at least two or three people dedicated to busing tables and ensuring the dining room is clean during the dinner rush.

His reply was, “No, I’m calling the assistant manager now.”

It would have been easy to overlook the mess, but my upbringing would not allow it.
